Kasine Paegra says ‘The Order of Thunder is the medal awarded to a Knight of Thunder who has proven himself superior to the average warrior. All knights and priests of Thunder have one, save for the youngest members. Along with the medal comes great respect. You might say the wearer becomes more charismatic. Should you find one, please return it to Kasine Paegra, unless told otherwise.’

You say, ‘what training program’

Vansted Rohenga says ‘Well all young clerics of Karana are brought up from their first day of training to know and respect their practice.
